Helping Families In Difficult Times

The birth of a child should be filled only with joy and happiness. When health care professionals are negligent, however, a medical and legal crisis can develop. At the law firm of Alan D. Bell, we represent children and families in birth injury cases in northeast New Jersey. If you believe your child's condition may have been preventable, we are ready to listen to you and assess your legal options.

To speak with Essex County birth injury lawyer Alan D. Bell about your child's injuries, please call 973-826-2342 or contact our Bloomfield law office online. Your initial consultation is free and confidential.

Serious Injuries Call For A Serious Response

We have succeeded in obtaining much-needed compensation for parents and children in cases against hospitals, OB/Gyns, doctors and nurses. Since 1990, we have handled cases involving life-altering conditions inflicted by negligence during pregnancy, during delivery and after birth.

We are here for you if your child is afflicted with:

  • Brain damage, which may have been caused by oxygen deprivation
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy or shoulder dystocia
  • Excessive newborn jaundice
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Autism

Birth injuries may be the result of failure to recognize fetal distress, the failure to perform a timely cesarean section and any number of other failures by medical staff. It is also possible for injuries to occur after birth due to improper neonatal care. If you choose us to represent you, we will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your child's injury. If negligence was involved, we will work diligently to build a case that succeeds in giving you compensation and some sense that justice has been done.
